A British Scientist has expressed hope that coronavirus medicine could be ready by September this year.

According to an Oxford University professor Sarah Gilbert  British Scientist who is heading a team of scientist trying to develop cure for the dread virus said.

Sarah Gilbert who professor of vaccinology said the human trials will begin next week.

Sarah Gilbert revealed about the medicine in an interview to the Times of London Newspaper.

Moreover She was 80% confident that  the vaccine her team is developing will work, based on other things that we have done with this type of vaccine.

She said such a timeframe “just about possible if everything goes perfectly,” but added: “Nobody can promise it’s going to work.”

Gilbert said the lockdown measures imposed in the UK would make it hard to test a vaccine because the virus not spreading as quickly,

But said it could trialed in countries where social distancing measures are less strict, thereby indicating more quickly whether the vaccine is effective.

The United Kingdom’s coronavirus death toll has risen by 917 – bringing the total number of people to have died in hospital to 9,875.

The shocking increase makes it one of the country’s deadliest days yet.

England’s death toll has spiked to 8,937, with the youngest victim only 11-years-old.
